Alexandra Friedman

scenography | puppetry | collaborative performance creation

Alex Friedman creates environments for performance -  in found locations, onstage, and on the body. She is especially excited about new work and having an open collaborative process. Alex aims to engage diverse audiences, exploding their preconceived notions of what theatre can be.

Born in St Petersburg, Russia, Alex is a native of New York City and an alumna of Brandeis University and CalArts. Her design work has been presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and throughout the SF Bay Area. She is currently a part of the ensemble creating The Gap, a new work being co-produced by the CalArts Center for New Performance and L’École de la Comédie de Saint-Étienne.
